After scoring a grand total of one run on 7 hits over the past two days, the Sox 8-game winning streak--you know, the one that just ended Friday night--feels like a distant memory.
It's not time to hover over the panic button or summon the dark clouds, but you have to be a little concerned when Ozzie's crew fails to show the least bit of adjustment or improvement in very specific weak areas.
(This won't become another Fire Greg Walker rant. But, um, yeah, Walker's job immunity and lack of accountability is not good.)
Once again Angels starter Jered Weaver completely shut down the White Sox offense Saturday afternoon, allowing only a Jim Thome infield single, Brian Anderson double and Nick Swisher single (that was quickly turned into an out on the basepaths) while striking out six.
Weaver's updated career line against the Sox: 3-0, 0.34 ERA, 25 Ks, 3 BB, 0.71 WHIP, .151 BAA in 26.2 IP.
Essentially, the Sox are now 0-for-the-century against this guy. (But they do have several foul tips.)
Looking to avoid a sweep, Jose Contreras faces John Lackey tonight.
